Question Setting up my first studio, ? about ventilation

Hubby and I are in the middle of building a shop.
One side will be for him, the other is for my torch work.
The building is going to be 28x32x10
Hubby has 3 diffenrent sizes of squirel cage blowers, umm the last one he brought home and pluged in blew all my pictures off the walls lol.
I told him I need something that would suck out the fumes not something that will suck my torch out of the shop.
However I do want to make sure we set this up right.
So I thought I would ask here.
How would you set up the ventilation and fresh air return.
My torch is a GTT cheetah.
And yes my propane tank will be outside.
I am really trying to make sure I set everything up as safe as possible.
and i'm having to watch every penny but i'd rather have to wait a extra month to get the money to do it right then to make myself sick doing it wrong.
So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Donna

Donna, the very first thing you need to do is *READ* the threads on ventilation.

For a short cut:

Using a random blower (fan) isn't going to work unless you know how many CFM it can move.

Required fan size is based on the size of the hood you will be using.

At the very least read the two documents listed in the links above, and that will give you a good starting point.
